But you can sit and drink ice-tea together?

 

These officials use any excuse to ban alcohol.

 

What if someone sits alone and enjoys a bottle of cold beer? Will that spread the virus?

Because social drinking is primarily beer and not ice-tea.

 

If u choose to go to a public beach alone, to drink a beer alone - why couldn't u do that at home?

 

Right now u should stay at home......

so why not just say that instead of this utter nonsense about beer

 

it has nothing to do with beer

You are absolutely right and that was what I was trying to get at. Look at the photos above. There are hundreds of people but not everyone is drinking alcohol.

I agree with you in that we don't go to the beach to drink beer alone. I have lived here for 20 years and in that time I have probably had maximum 5 beers on the beach and they have been with dinner. Heat and beers don't go well together in my opinion.

 

All I am saying is that Thai authorities use any excuse to ban alcohol consumption. Look at the train guard who raped a passenger. Ok- Ban all alcohol on trains. 

 

I don't drink a lot. Never go to bars, but i like a beer sometimes with my dinner - be it on the beach or in the comfort of my own house.

 

Anyway, lets see if an alcohol ban stops people gathering together.

Most are and they are idiots. Wait for Puket to get locked down - noone in noone out.

What is a farang or fallang. Is it attributed to skin colour or just foreigners?
